10 years, a full circle at the YPU Exhibition

18th May 2017
Saturday 14th May1017 saw the opening of the 2017 YPU (Yorkshire Photographic Union) annual exhibition at the Art Gallery in Huddersfield West Yorkshire.
It was a case of full circle for me, in 2008 I entered my first YPU exhibition in Huddersfield gaining three acceptances I still remember that excitement ten years on, reflecting on passed YPU exhibitions they have always been kind to me gaining acceptances in every exhibition, my first certificates (highly commended) came in 2009 the following year 2010 was the first of several pieces of silverware I won, my good luck of winning silverware and certificates carried on every year thereafter but as they say all good things come to an end, so it was to be in the 2017 YPU exhibition.
So no silverware this year but I managed 3 certificates (highly commended) with 13 acceptances, 6 prints and 7 digitals plus 3rd place in the photographer of the year award, so the full circle is now complete making 2017 probably my last YPU exhibition
